A Fancy Dining Room

(Click the arrow to view.)

The Huntington Art Gallery is in the San Marino mansion that was the home of millionaire Henry E. Huntington (1850–1927) and his second wife, Arabella (1850–1924). In addition to displaying a renowned art collection, the building shows visitors a gilded-age luxury home, with some rooms (like this one) furnished as they would have been during the period 1911-1927.

Photography is allowed as long as you do not use flash or tripod. In fact, the mansion and gardens have been used in many films (see list).
